Bought A chicken Korma meal deal from here.
For £7.20 i got pakoras chips, nan bread. spicy onions, and of course the korma itself.
The pakora was lovely. You can really go wrong with spicy onions.
The korma. Was nice and creamy, but had a slightly odd smell from it. Thought it was just me as they claim they make their own suace. Anyway, twenty minutes after eating most of the korma, I was over the toilet throwing up.
My partner and myself went around to the place afterwards and informed him of what had happened. he then brough out the chicken to show me it was fresh. It didnt look too fresh. But looked like it had been sittng out the fridge for a while.
I didnt want to cause a scene, but just said to the guy, be careful where you keep your meat. Might just be a one off, but i wont be back.

The twice ive been in here for a drink, i was made as welcome as a bullet in the head.
Staff where rude. Seems very cliquey, looks like if your not part of the "in" crowd here, you may as well not come in.
Could feel the eyes in the back of our heads as we left our unfinished drinks.

Great deal late afternoon, have a 3 course meal for £8.95.
Went in here with a mate. About 5pm. Saw it was busy and this to me is a good sign, Got handed the 8.95 menu when we sat down, A immense choice of meals. I had a chicken korma and it was lovely, My mate had had a chicken tikka dish and he said it was superb. the starters where mixed pakora, we had ice cream at the end. After a couple of drinks the bill was 26 quid, which was excellent.
Not only a great meal, but the staff are really nice as well, cant do enough for you.

Ahh! The Millcroft, locally known as the New Orleans.
A fairly large looking pub, but its not. The lounge is quite small and the Wallace bar a bit larger with a function suite upstairs.
the lounge looks ok when you walk in, but the toilets are an absolute joke. The have the usual karaoke at the weekends. They did try live music,but the regulars put paid to that. The bar staff are efficient in their duties, if a bit impersonal. Draught Beers and lagers are limited, but a good choice of bottled drinks and spirits. The wallace bar is a typical west of scotland drinking mans establishment, very few woman go in this bit. The function suite upstairs is stuck in 1992. and has a very bizarre entrance. You have to go through the lounge area and many attending the function end up there by mistake. Not the best pub in the world, but not the worst either. its unpretentious and doesnt claim to be something it isnt. Got taken over by Belhaven breweries recently and they have knocked out any soul it had left.

Handy newsagent on Rutherglen main street. Good choice of soft drinks, sweets, papers and magazines and cigarettes. Does a small section on household goods and bread,milk and the like. Popular with kids in the mornings heading to school. Has a good choice of birthday cards and other types of cards and balloons, banners and stuff for parties. A basic choice of presents you can buy, maybe good for a last minute addition. Staff are really helpful if you cant find what you are looking for.
Except for one guy who has to be the most miserable man i have ever met in a newsagents,(mistakingly didnt give me £2.75 change once, and denied it! the manager soon sorted it out though)) he doesnt smile, never says anything to you, and looks generally unhappy to be there,he also literally snatches the money from your hand. He usually only works in the mornings, so at least he is gone for most customers later on in the day.
That one gripe aside its a great wee shop and really handy.

wonderful food and wonderful staff.
staff are excellent and nothing is too much hassle. the place itself is traditional chinese food, no complaints, its well cooked, well served and wonderfully presented.
the drinks are well priced as is the menu. They deal with big parties profesionally with no reduction on meal quality. and no reduction in service if your not part of the big crowd.
people say, its a bit cheesy 80's looking inside, "(so locals say, don't stop them going there though) but i like it, and eat there as often as i can. Even the waiting area for takeaway. is a pleasure to sit in.
Its been the top place in rutherglen for chinese food for many years, i hope it holds its crown for many more.

If your looking for new and 2nd hand furnishings, this is the place to go in rutherglen. The owner is a very nice man, who will chat away with you and not try and force a sale. He will help you out if your restricted financially. From suites to beds, to pots pans and ornaments, hes got it. Pop in every now and agian and he may have a special one off!! PC's for £100 folks cant argue with that.
He also gives free delivery to all items locally. Dont be put off where the premises is, its actually quite a nice shop inside. Oh yes and he buys furniture from you as well.

Lovely small cafe owned by a Chinese family. Its a mixture of greasy spoon, lunches, Chinese food. Wines and beers. It caters for everyone. To the workers for a roll and sausage, to an all day breakfast also a wonderful seafood stir fry. They do a 3 course lunch for £6 and its superb with a huge choice of meals. The staff are wonderfuly friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The service is fast and efficient. Always busy on weekend mid mornings for the hangover crew and they sell a hearty breakfast to pick you up for the day. Regular folk drop in for take away foods and snacks. There is a child's menu as well. All in all a good little place, but can be hard to find off the main street. Go if your in rutherglen, you wont regret it.

The big coffee cup, set in the centre of the rutherglen arcade. Not a bad wee place for a greasy spoon. The "full monty" breakfast is quite pleasant and is quite filling, along with some hot toast.
Here is where it gets bizarre. you cant purchase a can of of fizzy drink at the table, it needs to be that overpriced watered down crap thats for mixers in pubs, and its more expensive, but you can buy a can at the takeaway section. don't get that at all. Service can be a bit slow. I had to wave quite a few times to get a waitress attention. Not a bad place, not the worst, but always seems busy.

Nice friendly staff, good beer/lagers if a basic choice. Lounge is closed during the week and the karaoke crowd take it over on a saturday. No frills in the bar. Bar prices are nice and cheap. The jukebox is incredible. Also the usual pool and darts. The bank holds regular psychic nights. Telling a bunch of drunk folk about their dead uncle who once owned a cat really isnt my cup of tea, but each to their own.
Now sadly closed!
